Chilly Day - Orange tees tough

Great greens and wish I could play this more often, but a little out of the way.

The Best!!!

I am a member at Carnoustie in Scotland and have played the best there is to offer back home. Panther Lake sits in my top 3 courses of all time. Fantastic from start to finish. Staff were excellent, our starter was friendly and informative, and the course was outstanding. Tees were excellent and the greens were fast but fair. Top notch condition.

Another Enjoyable Round

Course was in very good shape. My only criticism was the pace of play, which was more due to the sheer volume of golfers than to a particular slow group.

Good day on the links

Played panther lake on Sunday and had a great day. $70 for an organs county resident which is typical for this time of year. Staff was friendly and accommodating as always. Played in just over 4 hours, which for a Sunday morning was expected and the ranger was actually moving slow groups on. The one downfall was the greens were dreadfully slow, great course and layout otherwise. But wish the greens were rolling faster. Should be the perfect time of year for them to be rolling quick.

Great day to Play the Panther

My wife and I enjoyed playing the golf course.
We weren't familiar with the difficulty.
We were pleased with the golf course and the personnel.
I would play it again.
We play the Cat this weekend.

great course

played Panther Lake in December, Course was in great shape, challenging but you can see what is in front of you. Will play it again in a heart beat. practice facilities were nice but would have thought a bucket of balls would have been included with the price.
